As long-term blog readers know, the Emily holiday theme-food calendar is pretty packed. There’s Apple Month (September) and Pumpkin Month (October into November), and November/December are the only time of year I’ll eat eggnog, candy cane, and gingerbread.
My mom recently asked me why Valentine’s Day and Easter don’t get any love? I decided it’s lame that only August – December get theme flavors, so brought two new holidays into the party, albeit likely with less fervor. Valentine’s Day (February) gets chocolate-covered cherry and cinnamon, and Easter (April) gets coconut and lemon.
Here was this month’s themed-food stash:
Those goodies will be the main content of this post, along with a few other things that I LOVED (<– staying on theme). It works out to be work lunches/snacks since this week’s dinner situation was beyond bleak – 1. nachos 2. Chipotle 3. frozen meal from Trader Joe’s 4. Adam and I got into bed and fell asleep before 8pm.
Valentine’s trail mix with chocolate hearts, dried dark sweet cherries, and roasted pecans. Plus a Junami apple.
2% yogurt with blackberries and muddy buddies.
Vanilla bean yogurt with tangerine, blackberries, vanilla granola, and citrus crumble cake.
A coworker just came back from the Philippines and she replenished my stash of these amazing powdered milk candies.
bite sip of the week – very vanilla iced coffee.
Do you have any romantic plans for next Tuesday?
